A life-long dream was unlocked when All Secure Lock & Security, an Arvada-run locksmith and security company, opened the doors to a new building.
“Even though All Secure Lock & Security started in 2003, the seed was planted 60 years ago,” said Rita Lawrence, director of the All Secure experience, said. “It’s always been our goal to own our own building, but it seemed so unattainable.”
Located at 5701 Independence Street, All Secure Lock & Security specializes in keeping their customers secure with service locks, keys, safes, locksmith services, security systems and video surveillance. Originally located at 64th Avenue and Ward Road, the company swiftly outgrew their 1,000 square-foot space.
“There simply wasn’t any more space – there wasn’t enough parking for our customers, employees or our growing fleet of vans,” she said. “We want to continue to grow and expand our ability to serve customers.”
All Secure Lock & Security’s new building provides them exactly that, allowing the company to bring the entire team in-house, expand its selection of products and offers an on-site location to work on fleet vehicles.
Founded in 2003 by Ben Lawrence, an entrepreneur and security specialist, All Secure Lock & Security’s roots trace back two generations with Ben’s grandpa who began a locksmith business in his garage. The trade enticed Ben, who learned the trade working in the family business sweeping floors and stamping keys.
“Ben was a one-man show until we had our first son and I needed to stay home, focusing on accounting, marketing and diapers,” Rita said of their company’s early mobile locksmith days.
As their family grew, so did the business. “In 2013, we opened our first showroom for customers to come in for all their security needs – it’s time to grow again,” she said.
All Secure Lock & Security opened at their new location on July 29th. The business is open Monday – Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
